Dad is a Mother(f*cker).

(click ad, from 1947, via) Look at pops, happily tying on the apron and doing wimminz work. Helen's sick in bed, you see.

He's fucking shitfaced, obvs. Heck, later, he might even let Helen strap on a dildo and peg his ass.
Previously in good 'ol retro sexism.

OH! and the illustrator forgot the long strand of pearls to compliment the frilly apron.

Why, with Easy on the job even a 'dumb cluck' like me can do a whole week's wash in less than an hour.
